Ongava Lodge is situated on one of the largest private game reserves in Namibia - Ongava Game Reserve, which covers over 125 square miles, yet great pride is taken to keep the experience 'small and personal.'
Ongava Game Reserve takes only a limited number of visitors at any one time, to provide a level of service and a safari experience that is unmatched.
The friendly, sociable atmosphere at Ongava Lodge is complemented by a level of luxury found in first-class hotels. The chalets, lodge and public areas are all decorated to the highest standards using indigenous furniture, materials, and colours.
Ongava Lodge offers luxury accommodation in 14 en-suite units (13 twin bed chalets, 1 family chalet) made of rock and thatch.
- All rooms offer

- Indoor and outdoor showers
- Private viewing deck

The dining area is under thatch with wonderful views across the plains and floodlit waterhole below.
Outdoor dining under the stars, whilst viewing game drinking at the waterhole is something never to be forgotten.
There are impressive views from the main lounge, bar and dining areas, as they are situated close to the top of a hill, part of the foothills of the unpronounceable Ondundozonanandana Range.
The Lodge also has an inviting pool to cool off in the heat of the day.
Activities at this Etosha Game Lodge include game drives in open 4x4 vehicles into the Okaukuejo area of Etosha where lion, elephant (seasonal), gemsbok, springbok, black rhino, greater kudu and red hartebeest can be seen at numerous waterholes and fringing habitats. Apex predators like leopard, cheetah and spotted hyaena also occur in this area.
In addition, bird hides and walking safaris with guides are enjoyed on the private reserve. Ongava has resident white and black rhino - one of the few private reserves in southern Africa - allowing guests staying at Ongava the unique opportunity to see both of these charismatic species. For those who enjoy close wildlife encounters, tracking white rhino on foot with a guide is a highlight not to be missed.
